of the administration who came forward to give a speech about it. this past spring it was john brennan who gave the first ever u.s. policy address, admitting to some of our drone strikes. and defending them as both wise and legal. john brennan also this part fall told the "washington post" this -- "i think the rule should be that if we're going to take actions overseas that result in the deaths of people the united states should take responsibility for that. we should. but we don't. at least not for all of the drone strikes that we launch. the deniable drone strikes, the ones the u.s. does not take responsibility for, the ones the u.s. does not admit to even though everybody knows we're responsible for them, those are the ones that are committed as covert action. they're the ones that are launched by the cia. as john brennan has now been nominated to head the cia, he's being described as somebody who wants to bring this policy out of the dark. not that he wants to stop killing people using this particular tool, but he thinks we should do it in a way that is more accountable. he specifically thi

. lindsey graham says he's going to put a hold on john brennan. are they going to have to say guys, you have to pick one. you can't fight them all because the obstruction charge then starts. >> i think the idea of holds is maybe a little bit farfetched. you know, even those who are sounding pretty tough about chuck hagel indicate they think he'll get confirmed. but they want to ask tough questions. i think it's tough to beat a senator over policy issues. even if the issue is real. i think john brennan is going to face questions about the leak investigation. maybe on the left over some of the, you know, enhanced interrogation issues. you know -- i don't see any of these things bubbling up to the point where you actually get a hold. you know, we'll see. but i don't see that. but i see the hagel nomination certainly being tough. >> and i want to turn to guns here a minute. we're seeing -- it's funny, the white house has a very vehement reaction to the "new york times" story this morning, saying they are just wrong, they are not backing off an assault weapons ban. they are going to make thi

brennan and certainly for chuck hagel, and perhaps not as close with john kerry. >> the president's problem with dealing with any issue is making decisions on the basis of imperfect information. you never know as much as you would like to know about a situation. he appreciates different perspectives and different evaluations that give him the confidence that all of the angles have been discussed to the point that they can, and that he goes in to making a decision based on the best possible information, and i think that's what chuck hagel will give him. >> donald, i want to ask you about your close friend, co-author, the man you served, george herbert walker bush. how is president bush doing? >> i think he is doing much better now. >> that's good to hear. >> he had some respiratory problems that they were very afraid would go into a serious form of pneumonia. i talked to him a few days ago, and is he his old self sdwloosh how are his spirits? >> his spirits are fine. >> well, please convey our very best wishes. the whole country is pulling for him to get out of that hospital and to

these three new faces, chuck hagel, john kerry, and john brennan, you know, ashow do they feel about walking away from afghanistan? we talked about it before and it didn't go so well. >> reporter: that's correct. we'll have to what it and see the positions these new if, in fact, they do get confirmed how they will view this transition. our understanding is when you look at the defense department and someone like mr. hagel would most likely be leaning towards what we're seeing with the president, more aggressive in drawdown -- drawing down the troops in afghanistan. you know, we have to look back to the president during both of his campaigns made the promise of ending the war, first of all, in the first campaign in iraq, and drawing down the troops in the war -- winding down the war in afghanistan. in his second campaign he focused on that again, winding down the war in afghanistan, so this is in many ways the president delivering on that promise. but as we've been talking about, how quickly it should happen, how aggressive it should be is a big issue that will be discussed here today and con

, the president nominated john brennan to head the cia. all three posts need to be confirmed when the senate gets back to work. and speaking of approval, the president will kick off his second term seven points more popular than the first-term average flying in the face of history, though it's still early. five of the seven u.s. presidents re-elected since world war ii have been less popular in the second terms. so can the president use early momentum to push the policy agenda? let's spin. guys, i have been saying for a while now i think that his second term he's going the see a lot more pushback from the friends on the left than his foes on the right. for one, he's been re-elected. i think the gop has generally resigned themselves to the fact that they're going to be four more years to obama and they have a little less incentive to hang him for every misstep he has but democrats are incentives to watch him more carefully. one, payment, you know, a number of groups, unions for one, invested heavily in barack obama's re-election and i'm sure they want some roi now. two, accountability on the promi

they are very similar tempermental. >> woodruff: what does that say and though throw in john brennan. >> i think the chuck hagel thing, 579 cabinet officer notice history of the united states, and a grand total of nine nominees have been rejected by the united states senate in an up or down vote and exactly one since 1989 and two since 1959. i means that's all. so the idea of chuck hagel being rejected and the late john to youer who was rejected as secretary of defense, former senator there were large questions about his ethical dealings in business and his personal behavior toward women, and his personal kportment. and there is none of that with chuck hagel. i mean there is no scandal. there is no background that's going to come out and bite. so i think will you-- he's not the first enlisted man. bill perry who is bill clinton's first secretary of defense was briefly but then became an officer. he is a come bat veteran. i think it is interesting, david mentioned john kerry. john kerry, jim webb, dan ino way died, jim webb left voluntarily, john kerry will leave. they mr. only four members of th

the one that's got the toughest road, i think there's criticism of jack lew and john brennan, but also i think especially for chuck hagel as secretary of defense. interestingly enough, he was a former republican senator, and i think he thought he'd get bipartisan support. hagel didn't make a lot of friends among republicans because he was well to the left of them on a lot of foreign policy issues. opposed the troop surge in iraq, and opposed get tough measures against iran. a lot of leading republican senators don't like him. and some top democrats who are at least on the fence about him, because he took -- he made a statement about gays that they didn't like several years back. and also he has not been an unquestioned supporter for israel. i think hagel has the toughest road to go. we'll be talking to two key senators about that and the fight over gun control, which is starting to pick up in the capital. kelly ayotte, rising republican star, and senator from connecticut, blumenthal. >> looks like john kerry is the one that might sail through easier than the other two? >> i think kerry w
